Intro: C Csus4 C

C
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge

She studies sculpture at St. Martins College
             G
That's where I caught her eye
C
She told me that her dad was loaded

I said "In that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola"
            G
She said "fine" and in a thirty seconds time she said


F
"I want to live like common people
                                      C
I want to do whatever common people do

I want to sleep with common people
                                        G
I want to sleep with common people like you"
                                                         C
Well what else could I do', I said "I'll see what I can do"


C
I took her to a supermarket
                                          G
I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere - so it started there
C
I said "Pretend you've got no money"

She just laughed and said "Oh, you're so funny"
         G
I said "Yeah, well I can't see someone else smiling in here


            F
Are you sure you want to live like common people
                                           C
You want to see whatever common people see

You want to sleep with common people
                                           G
You want to sleep with common people like me
                                                        C
But she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my hand


         C
Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job
                G
Smoke some fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school
                C
But still you'll never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night
             G
watching roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all


F
You'll never live like common people
                                          C
You'll never do whatever common people do

You'll never fail like common people
                                        G
You'll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                               C
And dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to do

Interlude:
    C  G
    C  G


F
Sing along with the common people,
                                     C
Sing along and it might just get you thru'

Laugh along with the common people
                                             G
Laugh along even though they are laughing at you

And the stupid things that you do
                                C
Because you think that poor is cool


C
Like a dog lying in a corner they will bite you and never warn you
       G
look out, they'll tear you insides out
C
'Cos everybody hates a tourist especially one who thinks that it's all
         G
Such a laugh

and the chip stains and grease will come out in the bath


         F
you will never understand how it feels to live your life
            C
With no meaning or control and with nowhere left to go
            G
You are amazed that they exist and they burn so bright
                            C
Whilst you can only wonder why


         C
Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job
                G
Smoke some fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school
                C
But still you'll never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night
             G
watching roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all


F
You'll never live like common people
                                          C
You'll never do whatever common people do

You'll never fail like common people
                                        G
You'll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                               C
And dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to do


I want to live with common people like you

I want to live with common people like you
